Good day, I want to know about applications, whether Apple, Android or Windows, or even Symbian... anyone can use, English speaker or Hungarian... to find police stations, hospitals, consuls, banks... in a foreign city. Which may be Istanbul, London, Rome, Tokyo, Chicago or Rio...

I am thinking maps, perhaps a download via an internet cafe. Or before you go. Fonts translators...

Things girls from the eastern Europe can use. But also Australians and Brits.

Google maps is the daddy ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Maps

Google also has a free translation service which will translate webpages ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_translate ...

e.g.  this page in Hungarian ... http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=hu&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thenakedscientists.com%2Fforum%2Findex.php%3Ftopic%3D45565.0

NB: Google collates the information from all it's services : If you have Google email (Gmail) and use Google maps, Google could then know who you are, where you are, and where you plan to go, (as well as the webpages you have searched for or had translated by Google).
